With the NFL regular season fast approaching, we at SportsUntapped are taking our crystal balls out of storage and examining each team’s full 16-game schedule to prognosticate how the 2011 season will play out. We’ll look at all 32 teams and reveal each one’s final record. Next up: Peyton Manning and the defending AFC South champion Indianapolis Colts.

Indianapolis Colts

Last year’s record: 10-6.

Vegas Over/Under on 2011 Regular Season Wins: 9.5.

First four games:
Sept. 11 at Houston, 1 p.m.
Sept. 18 Cleveland, 1 p.m.
Sept. 25 Pittsburgh, 8:20 p.m.
Oct. 3 at Tampa Bay, 8:30 p.m.

Peyton Manning’s health is a question mark on the early part of the season, which probably gives the edge to the Texans in Week 1. The Colts should also have a lot of trouble with the Steelers and maybe even the Buccaneers, so they won’t feel too bad about a 2-2 start.

Second four games:
Oct. 9 Kansas City, 1 p.m.
Oct. 16 at Cincinnati, 1 p.m.
Oct. 23 at New Orleans, 8:20 p.m.
Oct. 30 at Tennessee, 1 p.m.

There should be a pretty solid three wins here, with easy romps over the Bengals and Titans that gets Peyton and co. to 5-3 at the midpoint of the year.

First four games of the second half:
Nov. 6 Atlanta, 1 p.m.
Nov. 13 Jacksonville, 1 p.m.
Nov. 20 BYE
Nov. 27 Carolina, 1 p.m.
Dec. 4 at New England, 8:20 p.m.-x

The only sure win here is the Panthers, so we’ll say two wins here and a 7-5 mark after 12 games.

Last four games:
Dec. 11 at Baltimore, 1 p.m.
Dec. 18 Tennessee, 1 p.m.
Dec. 22 Houston, 8:20 p.m.
Jan. 1 at Jacksonville, 1 p.m.

Most likely only two wins here and a final record of 9-7.
